Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven

2004 4.5/5 (131)   SD

Eddie (Oscar and Golden Globe winner Jon Voight, Ali) is an eighty-three-year-old war veteran who has outlived all the people he loved. He spends his days of routine and regret maintaining the rides at Ruby Pier, a seaside amusement park. Little does Eddie realize his own life--one that has been exhausted of surprise--is about to come to an end. On this morning unlike all the others, an accident on one of the rides has imperiled a five-year-old girl. In front of a horrified crowd, Eddie attempts to save her life. The last thing he sees is the little girl's frightened face contorted in tears and pain. The last thing he feels is the child's hands in his. Then, a blinding flash of light and silence, and Eddie reawakens in an unfamiliar place called Heaven. But he's not alone. Five people have been waiting to meet him. Some are loved ones. Some are distant strangers. Their goal is to introduce Eddie to the meaning of life by showing him how their lives and deaths have been a part of his own in ways he never suspected. Each of these souls is looking for closure, each has a story to relate, a secret to divulge, and a lesson to impart. One by one, they illuminate the mysterious interconnecting human web of an earthly life. Eddie's journey is about to begin. What he discovers is a chance at redemption and an opportunity to witness his impact on others, to recognize how loyalty and love truly matter, and to understand the surprising outcome of his final act of sacrifice on that fateful afternoon at Ruby Pier.
